Vendor Opportunities with MnCUN
The Minnesota Credit Union Network understands the importance of maintaining relationships with various organizations that provide products and services to credit unions. We value companies who offer professional service and quality pricing to help our member credit unions better-serve Minnesota consumers.
To be added to MnCUN’s database to receive mailings about vendor opportunities, golf tournaments or fundraisers, register as a vendor on the Network website. Please choose the "products & services” department from the drop-down list, indicate the reason for your message, and include the appropriate company contact person’s name, address and e-mail address in the box provided.
MnCUN offers two credit union tradeshow opportunities per year, one in the spring and one in the fall. With questions about either tradeshow, please contact MnCUN Director of Education Sue Groskreutz by email or at (651) 288-5521.
- Annual Meeting: April 25-26, 2014
Exhibitors are invited to this conference to take part in the state’s largest credit union tradeshow, held every April in the Twin Cities metro area. The 2014 conference will be at the new Radisson Blu Hotel, connected to the Mall of America in Bloomington. Throughout the weekend, vendors are welcome to attend luncheons, evening activities, and the Saturday awards breakfast. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are also available.
- Fall Conference: Sept. 5-7, 2014
This annual event is held the weekend after Labor Day at Madden’s Resort in Brainerd. The vendor tradeshow takes place Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Vendors are welcome to fully participate in the weekend’s activities, which include educational sessions, networking events, a golf tournament, and a Saturday evening banquet. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are also available.
MnCUN and the Network Service Corporation (NSC) form strategic endorsement relationships with various vendors to help credit unions compete in today’s financial environment. Strategic Alliances are structured relationships and consist of individual, personalized agreements. The Credit Union National Association also has a number of companies that it endorses, a listing of which you can also find online.
For additional information, Strategic Alliance criteria, and an application form, please contact MnCUN Vice President – Network Service Corporation John Ferstl by email or at (651) 288-5505.
The Minnesota Credit Union Network does not have standard newsletter or print ad rates. What we offer instead is participation in our Vendor Involvement Program (V.I.P.). V.I.P. was created in 2005, combining advertising, Annual Meeting packages, and other benefits. Participation in the program does not constitute an endorsement by MnCUN.
Annual participation benefits are based on the calendar year, Jan. 1-Dec. 31. For more information on the V.I.P., contact MnCUN Vice President – Network Service Corporation John Ferstl by email or at (651) 288-5505.
